Allocation of council houses is made to applicants on the approved waiting list in accordance with the allocation scheme. A Housing Needs Assessment is currently carried out on an annual basis by Wicklow County Council, and failure to complete this assessment form and return within the specified time frame may result in your being removed from the housing list.
Tenants in council houses can apply for a transfer after they have been a tenant for 12 months. Transfers will be considered for the following reasons:
- To eliminate overcrowding/under-occupancy
- To satisfy the special needs of individual tenants where possible
- To make the best use of dwellings
Routine repairs can be requested during normal hours to the Bray Municipal District office:
Phone: (01) 274 4900
Housing maintenance and repairs are logged and handled by the Customer Care Team. Bray Municipal District also operated an after-hours answering service.
Before contacting Bray Municipal District office, tenants should consult the Tenant's Handbook to determine the repairs that they are responsible for themselves.
Tenant Handbook - Repairs (please note there may be changes since the handbook was produced and if unsure please contact your local authority)
A tenant’s weekly rent is determined in accordance with the council's Differential Scheme. In accordance with the council’s Tenancy Agreement you should notify the council of any changes to your household circumstances, for example:
- A person in your household gets a job
- A person in your household becomes unemployed
- Another person joins the household
- A person in the household starts claiming social welfare
- There is a death in the household
- There is a birth in the household
It is important that you notify the council of all persons living in the property.
